Dad: (whom i rarely see) INTP
Dad(died when I was relatively young): Probably ISTP. Didn't see him much, but he was and expected me to be independent, I guess you could put it lol.
Stepdad: INTJ. We have a complicated relationship... but in general we have natural in-jokes and things that we both automatically understand that others in our family have no inkling about. He is pretty easy-going himself, but tends to uphold my mother's decrees with an iron fist. He had a huge part(good and bad) in getting me into the mindset I'm in now. I think when I was a kid I was more of an ISxP(although I asked the question Why? an unhealthy amount lol). He taught me to be open-minded and questioned my basic assumptions.
Mom: ESFJ. She is an ESFJ, but honestly, not unreasonable or anything. Of course, there is the manipulations of my emotions, which she is extremely good at, and the inability to look at things objectively. But she tries, and I'm not hard to please past that, even if we have our disagreements. Her behavior is moderately inconsistent and she has a sense of humor that has even me shaking my head sometimes, but still feels that compulsion for order and duty in a major way.
We get along.
My mom is an ESFJ. She loves discussions and debates, so we get along well.
Dad: ESTP, although nearly equal in the T/F and S/N category.
Mom: ENTJ, affectionate, yet harshly critical.
Dad: ENTP, although not very strong on the T side of things.
Mom: ISFP - Needless to say we argue often.
I've never asked him about this, but my dad is definitely an INTP or an INTJ. He lives halfway across the country and mostly we only really get to communicate over the phone, but from what I know of him he's definitely introverted, intuitive, and thinking; I'm just a bit fuzzy on the perceiving and judging bit.
My mom, on the other hand, who I do live with, is an ENFP. The only way we both get along is if we make an actual effort to.
Interestingly, even though I've had a lot more exposure to my mom than my dad, I'm a lot more like my dad? Nature and dominant genetics are a bit stronger than nurture here, I guess.
What's funny is that when me and my sister talk about what life was like growing up, you can see patterns and trends from how we perceived our parents treated us as children to our current personality types in the "Now". It's interesting stuff.
My mom is an INTJ and I assume my dad is an INFP. I don't get along well with my mom at all. My dad and I get along okay, but I don't really respect him at all because of the decisions he's made.
I actually just realize this, my family has all four temperments.
My dad is a 6 and a SJ (probably ISTJ)
My mum's a 2, and an NF (ENFx)
My brother's a SP. (ISFP possibly)
